    Repeating untruths as you are doing isn’t an argument either. Use the search feature if you want more information. I’ve made the argument to the other poster. If you want it to be your business you back up his false claim for him. I’m not repeating myself for you either.

    Fine. Back up your claim with evidence. That’s how this works. You back your original claim, I’ll follow suit.

    Animal Farm nailed it "they were all equal but some were more equal than others". Like AA.

    Once again, the law is very clear. And no business is going to risk ruin, just to save a few bucks because they don't like the skin/gender of certain staff. You're really talking nonsense, Reivs, and I suspect you know it.

    You think I'm racist? Have I been saying racist things about white folk?

    And that and 1984 were clearly a cautionary tale of the dangers of such systems. You have no idea what he would think of today's world.

    No it bloody well wasn't. It was written by a privileged white toff, who wouldn't have lasted 24hrs in a bonafide socialist collective.

    Just like every other Chardonnay Socialist, he merely postured. Played at being down with the common man, which just makes it that much more repulsive.

    Orwell went from anarchy to socialism. He always hated right wing grunt.

    Look at you and your bluster? ;) Always about support for your right wing chums...

    Crikey, can't you at least play pretend? Particularly as Orwell went to Spain (and you think that involves having a beer)

    Give just one example of two people working for the same organisation, but who are paid differently - where both work identical jobs, are identically qualified, and are working identical hours.

    And dude, I'm not the flaming capitalist here .. that'd be you.

    Yes, I have friends from across the political spectrum .. because we take our politics seriously. You can't take politics seriously AND be an ideologue. They're mutually exclusive propositions.

    And no, sorry. Can't pretend. Toffs is toffs.

    Old independently wealthy George (or should I say, Eric) rolling around the family seat, sipping G&Ts and playing lawn tennis with the Surrey Wentworth-Darlings. Retiring to the library after dinner to discuss 'socialism' over a tawny port :w00t:

    I guess you have not read 1984, describes a Socialist state to a tee, spot on.

    Socialist condemning authoritarianism? No **** Sherlock!

    Always amused me when right wingers would refer to Orwell, without knowing his socialism.

    Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book has been rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street and building has be renamed, every date has been altered. And that process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History will stop.
    This was written in 1949, but is happening today. Sound familar?

    Socialism being always Democratic Fair capitalism with a good safety net. Except for misinformed right-wing English-speakers....

    "We are all socialists now!"-president of Finland when ObamaCare passed....
